    Got Frog?

    Who's got the frog? It sure is a squirrely lookin' ride. I bet it folds down small; too bad it cost over 100 euros. I guess Mueller and Ruese (sp?) make these bikes for high class business execs who need to hop on a buss to get to work. I don't think there is another full suspension bike out there with wheels that small, yet.............Yan?

    It steers 'differently', it doesn't roll too well, it folds about the same size as a Brompton. Not my choice...

    I tried one out at avon valley Cycles in Bath, it's the only very small wheeled folder that I've found was ridable so far. And it does fold smaller than a Brompton!

    I think the Frog has a top gear in the mid 60s - so you are a bit limited for speed. Then again, that is probably for the best, given the Frog's short wheelbase (less than 90cms?). I'd imagine if you hit the brakes hard at 20mph+, you'd need wings...

    Wrong, I'm afraid 1000 Euro is written like this :- 1000! Well just about everywhere I go in Europe, anyway

    It does fold lower but is wider and longer. In cubic, it is virtually a wash.
